Okay - see if you can get access to the Ultimate Campaign book - I think that's
You've probably already figured to dump everything you can into stability, but
However - that said, if you're that close, there's not a lot you can do 'in-game'.
What you need to do is prepare for the worst & what you'll do AFTER your kingdom
It may also pay to speak out of game to your GM & see what can be arranged.
Why not have them come across other 'obstacles' at which point they have to make
You're racing to the temple & you have possibly 10(?) rounds to get there before
:) Have fun.
I do think I'l have Armag up and leave, and Zorek will end his term and the cave will close. Loss of loot and current exp.
And when the players go back - telegraph some of what they missed out...Show that until recently the place was inhabited. Leave clues about the
transformation that took place, have Zorek's journal left behind, aged
writings carved into the wall speak of Armag's final test & how hard it
shall be...& leave evidence that it's been passed...
If you structure it right, your players will have a facepalm moment when
I ran the Kankerata Run last week. I'd like to make the following comments: -
a. Each segment of the chase took 1 minute - otherwise it would just be silly short. Each check therefore was also for 1 min.
b. Because each part was for 1 min, competitors could do multiple things within each segment. e.g. heal, leave blood on the stones etc.
c. I counted the number of extra actions they took, and this number was what finally decided winners etc. So - touching a stone = 1 action, healing = 1 action, failing a skill check = 1 action, casting a spell...yeah, you get it... etc.
d. On top of this, all centaurs move faster than PCs generally, so each segment they 'scrub' off 1 action - except for 'compulsories' like touching a stone. Any PC who uses expeditious retreat or similar to move faster gains a similar benefit.
The competitor with the least 'actions' at the end won the race. It worked really well.
You could also add in something like a landslide triggered somehow...? e.g. Roc
We're not going with Pathfinder rules though as my group prefer the Savage Worlds system.
That is a cool idea - I'm going to be swapping away from running PF afterthis KM AP - & SW is going to be the next game I run. :)
To be honest - I can't see the Sowrdlords letting your party get away with it.
That being the case - you're going to have to do some MAJOR story revision. Yes,
Search & you shall find.
If you're not keen on Pennywit's excellent portrayal of wedding shenanigans,then how about making something of that which you've mentioned above?
You mention overt actions between the civil war protagonists...but what
Speaking of which - the AP as written has the PCs setting things up without
I did something similar for a start - but on a much smaller scale...
The good thing about the laminated method, is that using different permanent
Artemis & Orthos - thanks to you both for your kind words...
I only hope that it helps the OP.
Also most of the people that I know that are really into steam punk all insists that it does follow real world rules.
Honestly - herein, I think, lies perhaps one of the issues... Are thepeople you refer to engineers like yourself - or just 'fans' of the genre?
If the first - then perhaps you may need to check their credentials...
If the second - honestly, really? They don't know what they're talking
about...and you're right to be concerned.
Something that was mentioned higher up the thread, but wasn't really
Steampunk of today takes those beliefs of a bygone era, & expands upon
I think for you to understand this, all that is required is a suspension
In closing, I honestly don't see any difference between that or fantasy.
Playing Kingmaker soon, trying to add some Dark Tapestry / Chtulhoid influences to the campaign. *General Spoiler warning*
Search for Candlemere Island - LOTS of GMs have turned that into a Cthulu-fest!
There are a few mysteries around which you could also play with if you want, &
Why not take the fey in your campaign out completely & be replaced by creatures
Or, if not prepared to go to that degree, get Dark Fey by Kobold Press & similar
Cool - wasn't trying to knock your idea, just to play devil's advocate. :)
There's enough ideas on this thread to sink a ship & you can't do all of them,
You know your players & the type of game you want to run better than anyone
I'd think that with 2 PCs it's going to be as hard for them all the way through
Cool if that's the headspace you want them to be in. i.e. don't squander your
I'd say go with the temp mod idea.
'Really' good condition they are not. Pretty good - definitely.
Seriously though, I'm not railing. I'm just emotional because I really do love the Paizo products that much that I want to be able to hold all of them in my hand like a treasure. That's really all it's about.
;-p Now THAT I can appreciate! :)
As for Deloreans, I was there then too... In fact - I saw a replica on
As a small (perhaps very small) glimmer of hope - I will be selling my
Not only that, but all of the 'books' would need updates to correct errors,
Instead of railing against something Paizo have said they're not going to do
First answer is 'no idea'...on the 'how long is a piece of string' scale.
Pretty much comes down to what you want/if you want...
However, now that his purpose is fulfilled - does he actually have to die?
Thought I'd check in & ask how the UR sheet is going.
So - is the UR sheet living up to your expectations Chemlak? Anyone else?
Cheers & have a cool week.
29) Use the wedding of Varn to his young new bride (who is younger than his oldest daughter, who is betrothed to a PC) as the kickoff to Realm of the Fellnight Queen...(Which was run immediately before some kingdom building & then straight into book 3 VV.)
My current thought is that Realm of the Fellnight Queen could be used as a way to tie Varnhold closer to my players, BEFORE the Vanishing occurs. Thoughts?
I've already done so (although in a different hex - which is neitherhere nor there) with the trigger being the marriage of Varn to a new
Tenzikil crashes that, one of the party members outbid him for his
chosen's cakes (I think) & we went from there...
It worked really well, although I made Rhoswen a princess, rather than
By the sound of your campaign, you'll really need to bump up the threat
Only thought I have is that Aleksi could leave some sort of scrying 'item' with
Or equally - the sylvan sorcerer bloodline. They get an animal companion.
This thread is mainly about having a tatzlwyrm pet and not about kingmaker. Why was it moved there?
Just a guess...buuuut: -Anyone on the Kingmaker forums (especially GMs) will likely be better able
to answer your question & include within that answer the suitability for
use in Kingmaker...
Hah - after I'm not sure...but 2 - 3 years, we are just starting Book 3!
Heh - in my game they met & killed Kundal... But I am dealing with a bunch ofplayers who almost never consider where people come from, or the consequences
of their actions against 'normal folk'...
Kundal turned out to be the husband of one of the women in the Cult of G,
which is how she became embittered... :)
(That'll teach 'em...)
She also got away, as she wasn't in the underground store room the cult
I'll be placing a lot more than spriggans in VV - I want to amp up the fey
I'd also say that 'ostensibly' Restov is still their overlord.
Get Tales of the Old Margreve - THAT'LL put a bit of horror into your forest! ;-p
As for Fellnight Queen - I ran that between books 2 & 3...kind of as a lead
I went with the kobold thing early on in Book 1...but with a completely
You can also throw in choices which aren't necessarily 'hard', but which
Go for it. Let your imagination run wild.
Ok, just a couple of ideas off the top of my head.
RL prisons do not allow anyone except guards to carry weapons, so one might
Also, you may want to think about anti-magic zone/s...after all, I'm sure
Hope they help, if I think of any more, I'll post later...
I agree with pennywit, & would add that, if it's the army doing the pillaging
